My DIY Spring Wardrobe from 2017 by Sewing Daydreams

My DIY Spring Wardrobe from 2017

Spring is almost through here in upstate New York and I am pleased to say that I had a rather productive one!  I got to sew up some pieces that I had been thinking about for a really long time and it feels so good to finally be able to wear them.  I caught up with the talented photographer, Dave Blenis, recently and got to show some of my newest sewing pieces off.  Read through and check out my homemade spring wardrobe pieces from 2017.  After wearing them for some time, I have some new insight into them that I’m going to share here.  From my Red Riding hoodie to my embroidered Bohemian tunic to my Mad Men inspired skirt… Enjoy!

Also, as a side note, my husband enjoyed this spring wardrobe photo shoot because he got to take a brief vacation from being my Instagram Husband.  🙂
